Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does Lipo-Light work?
A: Through clinical studies it has been demonstrated that Lipo-Light stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.
Q: How Effective is this technology?
A: There are literally thousands of successful Lipo Light facilities all over the globe. They typically enjoy results between 7 - 9" over the course of a 3 week, 9 session protocol. These results are permanent. Unlike a wrap in which you normally lose only water weight, Lipo-Light results are permanent and truly long standing.
Q: What are the advantages of LED over invasive processes?
A: There are major advantages against invasive processes; including no pain, instant results against up to 16 weeks recovery for liposuction, possible risk of infections with invasive surgery, price advantages, no damage to the body including fat cells as opposed to total removal of cells, blood vessels, post-operative numbness, etc.
Q: What is the wave length of the LEDs?
A: Lipo-Light Pro 16 paddles - Has Dual Wavelengths 635nm for fat reduction and 900 nm for collagen and elastin for skin tightening and stretch mark reduction.
Q: How many paddles does Lipo-Light have?
A: Lipo-Light Pro has 16 paddles. Alternative laser products tend to have 2 - 4 paddles or do not touch the skin (which decreases efficiency).
Q: What is the absorption rate of Lipo-Light?
A: The LED system has a far higher absorption rate as opposed to laser treatment therapy due to the refraction and strength of the beam. Typically, each fat cell absorbs approximately 70% of the LED light energy compared to only a 40% absorption rate for laser. This gives a much higher chance of better results in inch loss and fat reduction.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Yes. There are no known risks involved in using Lipo-Light or Lipo-Light Pro and they are considered safe alternatives to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction. The Lipo-Light treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scarring or downtime. During the treatment you will not feel discomfort, nor will anesthesia be used. You can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Individual sessions and bundle session packages are available at various price points.

Q: Are the treatments painful? Are there any side effects?
A: There is no pain involved. The treatments are very relaxing and soothing. There are no known side effects.
Q: How many calories will a single treatment burn?
A: A single treatment would mobilize approximately 400 calories; however, tests have shown more.
Q: Do you have to exercise post treatment?
A: Yes. It is a required part of the protocol that post treatment exercises are done to engage the lymphatic system through muscle movement.
